    The weekend has arrived! And I’m sure you lovely ladies have a long list of enjoyable to-dos to help you wind down from your busy work week. If a brunch or a fashionable weekend meet-up with your gal pals is on that list, today’s style inspiration may be just what you need.

    Reader Kéila writes, “Hi! My sorority, Alpha Kappa Alpha, Incorporated, is hosting an afternoon high tea event and I have no idea what to wear! I do know that I’m on a budget, want to wear pink and/or green, and would love to include gloves in my ensemble…Can you help me?”

    Sip tea with your sorors in a pink tulip print skirt and a pearl embellished neoprene top. Add accents of green with a sleek pump and a sparkly box clutch.
